HeiQ's Anti-Viral Textile Treatment Technology - Sustainable Textiles Launchpad @E2expo
HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 is a textile treatment designed to provide textiles with antiviral and antibacterial properties. It is used for antimicrobial & odor control treatments on textiles. The traetment uses a combination of silver antimicrobial technology and vesicle technology rapidly destroy enveloped viruses including coronaviruses. It has previously been tested against coronavirus 229E, another strain of virus in the Coronavirus family.
HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 is a Swiss textile technology that is added to the fabric during the final stage of the textile manufacturing process. It uses the combination of HeiQ’s advanced silver technology and a vesicle technology as a booster. Silver admits silver-ions to inhibit bacteria on the fabric surface. The vesicle technology depletes the viral membrane thus silver can work more efficiently and rapidly to attack the core of the virus. The treated products last up to 30 washes at 60°C.
